PROFOOT - From Funky Feet to Presentable
First I tried the Pedi-Rock. And in the past I've tried pumice stones, cheese-grater type contraptions, and even those razor blade tools to cut off the callouses without a whole lot of positive results. My first thought about the Pedi-Rock was that it was really easy to hold. It fit nicely in my hand, and I could reach a lot of surface at one time. I also liked that you could use it wet or dry. My results? Well they were pretty darn good. After just one scrubbing I saw and felt a noticeable difference. I have to say I was impressed.
Next I tried the Heel Rescue Foot Cream. Alot of foot creams claim to be 'scent-free', but this one truly was scent-free. I am very sensitive to scents. I like to put cream on my feet when I go to bed, but if there is scent then I have to get back up and wash my hands which means usually the cream is either on the floor or I have to put on socks. This cream was totally scent-free. I was able to put it on, even rub it on my hands and it felt great. The directions say to put it on morning and night. Well, I admit after the first day I forgot to put it on in the morning. But it works. Yes, just one application at night has made a noticeable difference in my feet. Most of the rough places are gone, and I'm seeing smoothness that I haven't noticed in years. I'm sold. Who knows, maybe these runner feet will be able to wear sandals next summer!
I'm not a huge fan of inserts mainly because I can't seem to find any that feel 'right' to me. I even had professional ones made, and I didn't wear them long. I did give these a try. And they actually felt pretty good. They were cushiony yet provided support. The shoes I had to put them in were my running shoes. And even when I took out the insoles, these felt a little too high for the particular pair of running shoes that I had (Asics GT-2160). And with my knee feeling wonky, I was afraid to run with the inserts. I did put them in more 'regular' shoes, and I got a better fit. I believe though that if I was on my feet a lot that these inserts would come in handy. They felt like they absorbed a lot of shock. Same goes for the custom heel (which protests the Achilles tendon) and the toe beds.
Overall, I am very pleased with these products.
